Five-year-old Tommy (Anthony Wilson) witnesses the murder of kindly policeman ‘Mr Kool’ (Ed Bernard) – a well respected and admired figure in the community – and is rendered mute by the shock.
Tommy’s teenaged gang-leader brother HJ (Ahmad Nurradin) – who considered the cop a mentor – realises his sibling will be targeted soon and tries to solve the murder himself.
While the cops are frustratingly slow to follow up on leads, HJ’s gang seeks a truce with rivals led by Vega (Richard Yniquez) while racing against time to locate the killer and protect Tommy.
A low budget Blaxploitation offering, Together Brothers was filmed entirely on location in Galveston, Texas. The soundtrack by Barry White and his Love Unlimited Orchestra is arguably more famous than the movie.
